It is from motorsport that the latest family of Mintex materials have been developed. Known as C-Tech, these materials cover a whole spectrum of vehicles from a typical small hot hatchback for normal day to day use, through to a fully race prepared 700 bhp racing machine.

Apec was founded in 1965 specialising in car and light commercial braking components. It was taken over by the present management in 1981, establishing a formal relationship with Remsa, a European specialist aftermarket manufacturer, and today is regarded as one of the leading manufacturers of the world friction industry. This relationship still remains. The company traded as Automotive Power Equipment Company until 1998 then changed its name to Apec Braking. ISO 9000 approved since 1992, the company successfully completed an update to ISO 9000-2000 in November 2002 . Apec received the ADF Supplier of the Year Award (The Aftermarket Distribution Federation) on two occasions in 1998 and 2001.


New European standards for brake pads known as ECE Regulation 90 ensure high saftey standards, approved Apec pads are marked with an E and are now on over 120 parts and increasing. The Apec standard matches those of the original vehicle assemblers; each individual component is branded and part numbered for product identification and total traceability, and only environmentally friendly heavy metal-free materials are used. All pads are scorch processed, enabling an immediate bedding-in process, fade-free performance, dust reduction and improved user comfort and noise suppression.
